The United Way teamed up with Cedar Creek, Bethel, Simsboro, Ruston, Grambling and Choudrant Schools for the fourth consecutive year to present the Dollars $ense Reality Fair.
“This is a financial education simulation we’ve been doing this since 2010,” Michelle Saucer, community impact director for the United Way, said. “Students are all given a different job with a monthly salary.”
In honor of National Police week, the Ruston Daily Leader would like to congratulate three new hires of the Ruston Police Department.
